  • I’m supposed to be in Helsinki for work today but I can’t. I was looking forward to it, because the last time I was there I was crazy. Really crazy. First I had’t slept for almost all of august and part of september. Because of this severe insomnia, I developed a psychosis, and lost grip of reality. As I got better, I still suffered from memory loss, and I didn’t get all my brain abilities back for a few years. The trip to Helsinki was just when I was getting better, but it was too soon. I was going to take Emil to Kiasma and other art museums and galleries, but I can’t remember if I did.

    The only thing i remember is that I went to Stockmann and bought at really expensive red suit in a shiny fabric, and a hat and a scarf, and also a really big expensive beadspread.

    It took a few years before I gave the suit to charity, I wanted to believe that it was wearable. But buying an expensive red, shiny suit and a hat is probably the ultimate proof that you are not in your right mind. Wearing it would be even crazier.
